PE licensure is the engineering profession’s highest standard of competence, a symbol of achievement and assurance of quality. Being a licensed professional engineer means more than earning a certificate and possessing technical competence. It is a conscious commitment to hold the public health, safety, and welfare above all other considerations. Under John’s leadership, PSPE will continue to provide its members with the resources needed to earn and maintain the respected PE seal.
